Just wondering, are you not worried about EK's nickel issues? I don't know if it's still happening but I've read that they're still pretty shoddy and worth sticking to the copper alternatives? What's your view on it?

Best bet is to get her as dry as possible. Obviously if they find water you may have sunk your own boat. Try to get the mb dry, test it, if no go, submit an rma ticket and wait for their response. I would omit anything regarding water in your comments/description of the issue.

Are you using plain water or colored/dyed liquid?

There is no copper version. Also they have fixed the problem. To be honest I couldn't care less, I only got it to do a 7970 vs 680 and I wanted to keep the make of blocks the same.

I would say compression fittings are worth it. I personally just feel safer with them. There are some great looking barb builds thats actually look better because the tubing looks like it almost goes right into the block.

Well u can find cheap comp fittings 3$ each frozen cpu / sidewinder computers performancepcs etc.

You can pull a hose off a clamped barb fitting but u can not budge a hose off a screwed all the way down comp fitting.

And all it really takes for a brab fitting to leak is for the hose to get bump and get turned at an angle.

I'm not going to be running my fans any higher than ~1400rpm at full load, and at that speed and lower Martin has the ST30 right up near the top. It even out performs the XT45 an UT60 at very low speeds.

biggrin.gif That's exactly the reason why I have chosen Nexxxos, needed a slim 360 Low-fpi rad to pair with quiet fans for the top of my 600t. Its dedicated on cooling an i5-3570K (D5/Raystorm - rig under construction) and its doing a good job keeping a Delta T of ~7celcius on stock clock speed.

When I was searching for fans I considered buying some high performance ones just for the extra headroom, but then in reality this particular rad can't be benefited from the extra airflow (even if there is the need) and you have to constantly tweak the fan controller searching for the sweat spot thus quiet edition it is.

Avoid the TFC compression fittings. they are really horrible and don't have any tolerances for tubes (even if its the correct id/od).

Phobya makes good compression fittings and they're priced very well. If you can spend a bit more, Enzotech, Alphacool, and EK are great too. Skip XSPC, its really an ok fitting but I would recommend something better (like this mentioned before).

I've decided that this is not for me...yet. While cool and beneficial, I definitely need more time to think this over.

Get an XSPC rasa/raystorm kit. Good way to get started if you're not ready to put together a loop. All components are off the shelve pieces you can buy separately and/or upgrade
